GENERAL INFORMATION
ERAGON LQ is a water-based suspension concentrate herbicide for broadleaf weed control.
ERAGON LQ is rapidly absorbed by root and foliar uptake; once absorbed it exhibits mobility in plants. ERAGON LQ is a potent inhibitor of protoporphyrinogen oxidase (PPO). Cell membrane damage induced by inhibition of PPO leads to plant death. Susceptible weeds develop injury symptoms within hours of application under active growing conditions; plant death occurs within 3 to 5 days depending upon growing conditions.
ERAGON LQ is recommended for pre-plant and pre-emergent applications in corn, soybeans and cereals for burndown of broadleaf weeds. ERAGON LQ may also be used as a harvest aid in soybeans, dry beans and canola and as a pre-harvest weed management treatment in wheat, barley and triticale.
ERAGON LQ does not control grass weeds. An appropriate pre-emergent or post-emergent grass herbicide must be tank mixed with ERAGON LQ for broad spectrum weed control.
ERAGON LQ is a broad spectrum weed resistance management tool for activity on a range of broadleaf weeds.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
WEEDS CONTROLLED
Pre-plant or Pre-emergent Burndown (Cereals and Soybean)
ERAGON LQ may be applied pre-plant or pre-emergent to cereals (barley, oats, wheat) and soybeans for control (burndown) of the following emerged broadleaf weeds. It is recommended that ERAGON LQ is always tank mixed with glyphosate for broad spectrum weed control.
Pre-plant or Pre-emergent Burndown (Corn)
ERAGON LQ at 146 - 292 mL/ha may be tank mixed with glyphosate and applied to corn prior to planting or after planting prior to crop emergence. Use 292 mL/ha for extended residual control of continual flushing weeds such as lamb’s-quarters, redroot pigweed and common ragweed.
ERAGON LQ + glyphosate will provide control (burndown) of the following emerged broadleaf weeds in addition to those controlled by glyphosate.

REGISTERED CROPS

HARVEST AID / DESICCATION IN SOYBEANS, DRY BEANS AND CANOLA (ALL TYPES)
ERAGON LQ may be used as a harvest aid to accelerate the rate of dry down for crop and green weeds and improve crop uniformity to facilitate direct combining of soybeans, dry beans and canola. Early application may result in yield loss.
The dry down of crops will be best under favorable environmental conditions like warm temperatures, good moisture conditions and high humidity.
Harvesting of crops can be done when plant material is dry and seed moisture level allows efficient harvesting. For most crops, harvest can normally commence within 3-10 days after desiccation. Adverse weather conditions such as rainfall, cool temperatures and high humidity may slow the plant desiccation and keep seed moisture levels high which can delay commencement of harvest after the ERAGON LQ application.
ERAGON LQ when used as a harvest aid will not affect seed germination if applied according to label recommendations. Applications sprayed prior to label application timing may impact seed germination.
For the harvest aid/desiccation in soybeans and dry beans, do not graze or feed treated hay or straw to livestock.

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS
1. When applying ERAGON LQ, always start with a clean sprayer. Thoroughly clean the sprayer by flushing the system with water containing detergent. Refer to previously applied product labels for specific cleaning instructions.
2. Fill clean spray tank half full with clean water. Start agitation system.
3. Using a calibrated measuring device, add the correct amount of ERAGON LQ. Continue to agitate.
4. When tank mixing with glyphosate, add ERAGON LQ followed by recommended amount of glyphosate. Then add the correct amount of PURSUIT Herbicide, if required.
5. If recommended, add the correct amount of MERGE Adjuvant to the tank last.
6. Continue agitation while filling the spray tank with the remaining amount of water.
7. Continue to agitate or run the by-pass system.
8. After any break in spraying operation, agitate thoroughly before spraying again. Check inside the tank to ensure that sprayer agitation is sufficient to remix the spray materials. Do not allow the mixture to sit overnight.
9. If an oil film starts to build up in the tank, drain it and clean the tank with strong detergent solution.
10. Immediately after use, thoroughly clean the sprayer by flushing the system with clean water containing detergent.
Dispose of all rinsings in accordance with provincial regulations.
